British Sedimentological Research Group AGM

Registration closed

The British Geological Survey is delighted to be convening this year’s AGM. As in previous years, we anticipate a strong turn-out from research students and early-career researchers, together with our knowledgeable and diverse community of academic and industry experts.

The BSRG AGM is the most important event in the BSRG calendar and is the focus for much of BSRG's activities. BSRG 2014 will include core workshops at BGS’s National Geological Repository and two days of conference at the Nottingham Conference Centre. Please see follow this link for details.

20th – 22nd Dec 2014

QRA Discussion Meeting

QRA 2015 Annual Discussion Meeting: "The Quaternary Geology of the North Sea basin and adjacent areas" 5th to 8th January 2015. This meeting is bringing together earth scientists and archaeologists working in North Sea and adjacent onshore areas. The themed sessions will focus on new ideas regarding the Quaternary evolution of the North Sea basin on a variety of time scales, its glacial and interglacial successions, its archaeological record of human occupation, and the recent advances in the mapping of marine habitats and their conservation. Contact Emrys Phillips, Carol Cotterill , or Margaret Stewart for further details.

Carbon dioxide molecules

Hosted by BGS this meeting will give interested partners and researchers an opportunity to learn more about the scientific objectives behind the ‘GlaciStore’ bid to the IODP for scientific drilling from Norwegian and UKCCSRC bid proponents.

Researchers interested in joining the science party for IODP, if the bid is successful, will also be able to find out more information.


10:00 – 13:00 27th Feb 2015

Past Global Changes

This workshop constitutes the first meeting of the group members and other interested parties. It aims to identify both existing data and gaps in current research to create a meta-database. Priorities for analysis will be identified as will themes for subsequent meetings.

A detailed agenda for this meeting will follow in due course.

11th EURO-conference on Holistic rock physics: integrating theory, observation and applications in space and time.

University of Cumbria, Ambleside, Lake District, UK

Conference sessions will include fault healing/sealing, time-dependent deformation, hydration/dehydration in crustal rocks, induced seismicity, scaling relations, and fluid driven fracture mechanics. A field trip to outcrops of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group will be arranged during the conference week.

First circular

We expect to release a second circular and a conference website in January 2015. At that time we expect to provide further information, including participant fees and reduced rates for students.
